Tethering

2 Nov

We have no power or internet after Hurricane Sandy. But in my office, I am able to connect to the internet via my T-mobile Samsung Galaxy II. Here are instructions:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Choose Wireless and Network
  3. Scroll down to find Tethering and portable hotspot
  4. Click on portable Wi-fi hotspot setting
  5. Click on the configure button
  6. setup a network SSID and a password. press OK.
  7. Click the check button next to portable wi-fi hotspot to turn the hotspot on.
  8. Next, go to your computer. Find your wifi network that you just setup and login with your password.

Voila! Internet access!

Note, the tethering uses up a LOT of battery power. and you must have 4G connectivity.

There is no additional charge to use the tethering but you may want to call T-mobile to find out what your data plan limits are. My limit is 10GB. I can use up to 5GB of that for tethering.

Its pretty fast. I am a happy lady!
